  1. Hi there,

    Whats your BIOS version?

    Are u on F10?
  2. The title of this topic has been edited by Nikorr
  3. Yes, i've got the F10 but still the issue :(
  4. And if u don't go in the BIOS, does it boot up?
  5. Can u reset the BIOS again?
    Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
    And when the battery is out, press the power button to discharge all the electricity from the system.

    I would agree to Clear CMOS first.

    IF that fails then sure Photos are always very useful.

    The ONLY way to update your BIOS is via Q-Flash! Other ways have a tendency to do more harm than good i.e. 'Brick' a MOBO.

    It doesn't work, I press DEL and then it appears a message "Load CMOS default values and reboot", but it freezes there, so i restarted and tried to enter BIOS, here's a photo when i try to enter...
  8. If the Clear CMOS fails and IF you can boot in to Windows the try booting into Safe Mode - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode once in a while that fixes a stuck BIOS if it's not totally corrupted.

    ¿You mean entering Safe Mode fixes this?

    I'll try.
  10. It's worked before (BIOS message hangs/warnings), and cannot hurt to try...

    It doesn't work too :/, and I tried Q-Flash but it freezes too :(
  12. Q-Flash 'Bootable method (see '4. A Bootable') - http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/27576-bios-flashing-how-qflash-guide.html

    After that ... RMA your MOBO and/or contact Gigabyte.

    I can't use Q/Flash because it freezes too :(, i'll wait if someone knows any solution, then i'll go to support.
  14. You have a 'Dual BIOS' MOBO and unless IF both BIOS are corrupted you're SOL (bricked) and "Xpress BIOS Rescue" is supposed to work automatically to recover a corrupted/bad BIOS flash.

    It's possible you have something else causing the freeze, try (1) stick of RAM and failure try a different stick of RAM.

    In day you could recover a bad BIOS booting off the MOBO's OEM CD/DVD; so if it does then try booting with DVD. 9/10 it doesn't my UDR DVD doesn't and it's essentially the same recovery options.

    I tried using 1 by 1 sticks of ram, but still the same freezing.

    I don't understand when you said "booting of the MOBO'S OEM CD/DVD" (the motherboard dvd?)

    I don't understand what you don't understand??

    In day you could [recover] a [bad BIOS] [booting off] the MOBO's OEM [CD/DVD]
    MOBO = Motherboard ; OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer (Gigabyte)

    Assuming you did Clear the CMOS properly and you didn't if you failed to unplug your PSU, and it's not the RAM then lastly try a different GPU and unplug every peripheral: USB Headers, SATA, PCI/PCIe devices, USB devices off the I/O), heck I'd even unplug the Keyboard/Mouse.

    If that all fails then MOBO = Bricked. RMA the MOBO to Gigabyte or whomever you purchased it.
  17. YEAH

    Solved, fews weeks ago came out a new BIOS version (F11)

    How to solve?

    Just update to F11.

    :)
